Gasoline [ Petrol ] prices
Here gasoline at the self serve pump has been up and down

Right now it is 78 cents per liter , canadian [ 100 canadian pennies = 1 Loonie ]

Yesterday it was 72

A while back it was in the 60's.

If there is a war with Iraq and Sad-Man H decides to poison all his wells before defeat.

What will be the price ???

What do you pay for recycled dinosaurs ?

I wish I were paying even 80 canadian cents per liter.
I'm paying something like C$ 1.20 per liter.

Hell, with the difference alone in prices I could've bought the whole GT script suite!

Heck in Winnipeg they had a gas war at 47 cents per liter.

The other funny thing is : what is a liter ?

US gallons are different from non US gallons.

I used to be able to fill my tank with $20 now that is just over half a tank.

I have only owned this nuts and bolts for 3.5 years. I made it out of 2 vechicles.

Owning a torque wrench is a good thing.

We also have Air care here where you have your exhaust emissions tested yearly.

It works but old vechicles [ like mine] have a larger permissible reading allowance.

New Cars have tighter readings , so a vechile can fail due to the converter is not hot enough.

I failed miserably on one test as the test person flooded my vechicle , I drove to the next

testing site and passed with no problem, except paying twice to pass and my time.

But it would be nice to see and be able to buy a vechile that uses less dinosaurs and

causes less enviromental pollution. People forget the electric cars get charged from an electric

plant and they may not be enviromentally friendly.

We need star trek type power, except when 2 objects collide and you can not dump the core in time.

Thanks

I'm usually paying about $1.38/gallon here in Virginia coming to about $19.25 for a full tank (14 gallons). When I first started driving I could fill up the tank for about $12.

Too right Paul Frown 78 pence a litre, 25 a full tank (about $40US). It really does suck. Cigarettes are just as bad here.... about $8US for 20 B & H Unimpressed

Eventhough I smoke I won't complain about the price. Strange but it's something I just won't do.

Eek! I thought $3.50 for a pack of Marolboro reds was expensive. (I quit smorking last year... fortunately I hadn't smoked long enough to get addicted.)

Programming tends to get me a little stressed when it doesn't work out after a long time, so I need to smoke, or else I end up geting through a lot of monitors Tongue

Interesting. I must be doing something wrong. I've tried smoking a few times and I've never found the benefit of it. Same goes for coffee or any other 'drug' really. The only drug that has any sort of affect on my is alcohol. ;-)

coffee taste better if you have a smoke at the same time especially when you're sitting on the street corner watching the babes go by ... Wink

I don't smoke in my house anymore, if and if I really just gotta drag I go out to the balcony ... it's been snowing recently so I've cut down late night smokes to while I'm taking the trash out.

I wish I never started ... urrr ... I wish it were easier to quit Blush
